Foals and Beckwill headline Bestival 2014.

The two new additions to the festival will both headline with Beck performing in the Big Top on the Thursday night of the event, on September 4. Foals will then headline the Main Stage on the Saturday night (September 6). They join OutKast on the bill after it was revealed last week that the rap duo will play the Friday night of the Isle of Wight festival.

An additional raft of acts have also been added to the Bestival line-up with confirmation that Disclosure and Major Lazer will perform at the festival later this year. They are joined on the bill by the newly announced London Grammar[/b], Sam Smith, Wild Beasts, Clean Bandit, Caribou, [b]Chvrches and Mercury Prize nominee Laura Mvula.

Last week Bestival announced its fancy dress plans for 2014. This year the Isle of Wight event will stage a tropical 'Desert Island Disco' theme, following 2013's nautical 'HMS Bestival' theme. For more information, visit

Bestival will be one of 40 festivals OutKast will play this summer around the world. Earlier this month, the duo revealed that they would be making their live comeback headlining Coachella Festival in California alongside Muse and Arcade Fire in April. They subsequently announced another headline slot at New York's Governors Ball festival, which takes place June 6-8 on Randall's Island.
